Linux "Intel and Samsung are now confirmed to be working under the umbrella of the Linux Foundation, and with the cooperation of the Limo Foundation, on 'Tizen', a new mobile operating system based on Linux. Various rumours about the parties' future plans for MeeGo and merging of plans have been in circulation, but the announcement of a new operating system was unexpected. The Tizen operating system will combine components of MeeGo and Limo with an emphasis on supporting HTML5-based applications and WAC (Wholesale Applications Community) distribution and APIs. WAC is the product of a number of mobile companies who have developed a uniform platform for mobile widgets and applications based on W3C standards."

... my noble Nokia N900, with the super deprecated Maemo OS, is still chugging along with various comunity updates. And I love it.

It really is fantastic. However, the community is starting to fracture with no foreseeable future devices to move to and developers leave for greener pastures. So disappointing, but I'll enjoy it while it lasts.
